Strange Gadget Alert - Pick the Worst

The Wired crew has put together an entertaining collection of CES gadget photos, some of which borderline on perverse, many of which are just plain ugly and all that leave me to wonder, why? It's funny actually, because I'm naturally attracted to most gadgets, but they have to be functional with an air of sophistication. I just see no need to have a humidifier that looks like a pig, when you can have a nice white or silver one.

Clockwise from left: Ultrasonic Humidifier From Sunpentown, Koss Quiet Zone 2000 Headphones, VenMill Industries' Skip-Away, The City Cowboy From Sunpentown. So, which one do you think is the creepiest?

I remember seeing some girls (teenagers mind you) on the City Cowboy in the mall and their parents laughing. My fiance and I couldn't believe what we saw, but it sure as heck didn't look right... Sometimes I wonder what gets into these people's minds when inventing. Yeah like the one thing on everyone's Christmas list was a mechanical bull for home...
